Why Visit a Hygienist?
Surprisingly more teeth are lost due to gum disease than tooth decay.
Regular visits to the hygienist will help to improve dental health and prevent periodontal (gum) disease and bleeding gums and dental decay (caries). Diet advice, fluoride application, fissure sealants and oral hygiene instruction are all part of our programme of prevention.
Our hygiene surgeries are fitted with the very latest equipment including air polishing machines which gently removes unsightly staining without damaging your teeth.
Approximately half the population have a problem with mouth odour – a problem that can be reduced with regular visits to our dentists and hygienists in Reading.
What Happens During My Visit?
If you’ve never visited the hygienist, you may be curious about what the hygienist can actually do. Although they’re not dentists, there’s still a great deal that hygienists can offer patients.
Our dental hygienists can treat several problems, and specialise in the following treatments:
- Scaling and polishing your teeth
- Advising patients on preventative care for gum disease
- Administer local anaesthetic
- Fissure seal children’s teeth.
For some dental issues, a visit to the dentist isn’t necessary when a hygienist is able to provide the exact same service.
After a visit to the hygienist your teeth will feel brand new. To keep them in great condition, the hygienist will offer you advice specific to your areas of concern. For example, if the hygienist believes you’re brushing with a toothbrush that’s too hard, they can make you aware of better toothbrush heads that are more gentle on your teeth.
